This integrated and coordinated advancement of thermoforming gear rack for Machine Tool Industry machines and tools is our most important customer benefit and unique on the thermoforming market. With the intensive know-how of our skilled experts in both tool and machine engineering, our clients benefit from a unique synergy effect leading to a higher service existence of both machine and tools, as well as an optimal formed part quality. We aim to surpass your objectives and make sure your success with our quality.
For a long time, a machine tool builder had produced their very own precision gear racks to attain ultra-precise positioning on their machines. They also needed this because their important clients demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning without any error compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wished to find a gear rack provider who could achieve the same restricted rack tolerances and performance level that that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide variety of regular rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Accuracy DIN 4 (UHPR) gear rack, which got a total pitch deviation of less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a one meter length. The real pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To achieve the high rack power the customer required, the root of the teeth were hardened combined with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was utilized to achieve the required flatness tolerances on the trunk and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we can handle manufacturing complicated gears and sprockets that no other manufacturers can create. The part shown this is a helical gear rack that is utilized on a Maag gear manufacturing machine. The apparatus rack is 6′ lengthy, includes a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is made from 4130 steel.

The customer needed a replacement part which is necessary to the procedure of their machine and had previously been struggling to find someone with the capability to cut the required size of helical rack. Often customers e mail us because OEM parts are no more available or are cost prohibitive. Often, clients have found that the grade of replacement parts made by us exceed the product quality their OEM parts.

Many of our projects are exclusive within the sector and represent probably the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain an array of rare gear shaping gear as well as advanced CNC milling and turning centers, which allows us to make a vast array of gear, sprocket, work, and rack sizes, shapes, and patterns.

The rack was produced on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The client was not only pleased to find a manufacturer capable of producing the component; they remarked that the product quality far exceeded their goals. We created this helical equipment rack with a business lead time of only fourteen days. For additional information regarding this custom gear rack machining project, e mail us directly.
A rack and pinion drive program contains a rack (or a “linear equipment”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). One’s teeth of a rack and pinion drive could be straight or helical, although helical the teeth are often used due to their higher load capacity and quieter procedure. For a rack and pinion drive program, the maximum force that can be transmitted is basically dependant on the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
